Looks cloudy orange marmalade color, nice white foamy head which laces the glass. Smells earthy, super fruity(fruit salad),mild onion. Taste is delicious. Sort of a "fruit punch" thing going on, with a mild hop bite and semi-sweet finish. Feels perfectly well put together. Nice carbonation, finishes refreshing. With the lower ABV than it's filtered cousin Hootie I would imagine this is very drinkable. Overall a great offering from Six Point.

Appearance - Pours a medium gold color (January '18 release of this beer was slight darker potentially due to a change in malt bill as the original version from December '17 was a straw yellow), 100% haze for dayz, half a finger of foamy white head that was slightly rocky. Looked gorgeous in a glass.

Aroma - Huge tropical fruit notes - tangerine, orange, citrus rinds/peels.

Taste - Same as aroma. Massive tropical fruits with tangerine leading the way and slightly acidic on the backend. January '18 released improved on the mouthfeel as it felt more full bodied and silky despite the lower (5.4%) ABV.

Overall - Just an awesome beer that will hopefully become a staple small-batch release for Sixpoint in 2018. Delivers everything that a New England style beer should at a very manageable ABV that allows for multiples.

They aren't kidding when they say "Hazy" American Pale Ale--this one's opaque corn milk yellow with a moderate, fuzzy white foam settling unevenly in a lump on one side of the glass leaving some fuzzy coral-like lace.

Smell is spicy and cannabic with citrus zests, popping herbal evergreen and pepper.

Taste is a little less spicy, with an almost milky presence of biscuit malt. It still comes with that evergreen and eucalyptus, as well as lemon, lime, orange and mint.

A slick, watery and moderately light body has a crisp fizz, finishing semi-wet to semi-dry. Light and enjoyably drinkable.

This beer is incredibly similar to FPPA. From a brewery that flew under my radar to a beer that I'd buy all the time if I could. Thanks Sixpoint.

Love this one. I typically don't love lower abv beers, but this one is the exception. Juicy and hazy but with classic pale ale taste. This one goes down well now, would be even better in the summer time.
